The '32 Ford Street Rod is painted a deep aqua color with yellow and red side flame decals. Like the Sedan it's brimming with chrome, has a hood that opens to reveal a stock V-8 engine, bar-mounted front headlights and a two-passenger interior dressed out in light brown leather. Look for an old style chrome trimmed windshield with clip side windows, bumper flame decals, oversize chrome wheels and flat extended front and rear bumpers. It also requires a Level 2 modeling skill.
The Ford F-250 Super Duty Pickup with its extended cab, 7.5 liter V-8 engine and heavy duty frame is a favorite among truck lovers. This workhorse of truck is solid muscle that makes it perfect for hauling heavy loads, tackling rough terrain and hitting the back roads for some good old boy country fun. Two-tone white and tan with four roller bar lights, heavy suspension, thick bumpers and oversize side mirrors makes this a favorite with truckers hauling loads, third wheels or extra passengers. Go Ford tough!
GMC's solid black Syclone Pickup is the truck that pleases both the diehard utility driver or the driver that likes to show off his wheels.

All fin and chrome the '57 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham is a sleek aerodynamic luxury car that's stylish, stunning and a classic. Painted black or deep blue, this four wheel wonder makes the perfect ride to the opera, dinner show or out to dinner at a fancy restaurant. Two figures come with the car, dressed in 1950's elegance.
The Red Knight In Vienna from Monogram comes in solid red armor with removable helmet, a candy-striped lance, gold head crest, chest jousting protector and rectangular base. Think of it as a 15th century Iron Man.
One of the all-time classic movie monsters of all time, the Creature From The Black Lagoon is still as visually stunning as it was over 60 years ago.
The Gill Man is posed with arms outstretch and stands on a Lagoon base complete with reptilian friends: a lizard and snake. Be sure to check out the incredible detailing of the face, body scales, clawed hands and feet and base. This model requires Level 3 modeling skill and is best done by those 12 years and older.
There's helicopters and then there's helicopters! The Sikorsky CH-54A Skycrane has a rotor span of 72 feet, can carry 10 tons and performs multi-transport tasks such as laying pipelines and transporting mobile housing units.

It's a monster of a helicopter with tons of intricate details, and army issue paint scheme and removable units that will please any military buff.Get fired up with Revell's Corporal Missile With Transporter.

The Transporter cabin opens and closes, operating pistons move the huge leg braces, real gears elevate the missile launch pad and arms, legs and pads all move and pivot. This baby is loaded for bear with heavy duty armor, a four wheel mounted Transporter chassis and a detachable mobile radar platform. Lock and load this 1:40 Scale weapon of mass destruction.
